Keeping Our Schools Safe
Charter school leaders,
Recent tragedies nationwide remind us that while our school is very safe, we must always be prepared for one critical situation that could change lives forever. Keeping our students, teachers and staff safe is always job one.
We invite you to a very special presentation on
Monday, March 12 at 9:00 am
in the Multi Purpose Room at American Preparatory Academy. This investment of your time could also potentially save your life. The presentation should last about an hour.
Our speaker, Dr. Larry Barton, is the highest rated instructor at The FBI Academy and U.S. Marshals Service where he teaches threat assessment. Dr. Barton is the Distinguished Professor of Crisis Management and Public Safety at the University of Central Florida and has managed numerous cases of situations at schools, including those involving mental illness by parents, students and staff, school shootings, hostage situations, suicidal ideation and other issues that are important for us to understand. Dr. Barton began his career as a young professor at UNLV and knows our community well. He is the on air commentator for CNN and CNBC during major cases of violence, and as an educator, he knows the challenges and opportunities we face well.
We are offering this training to all of our staff, as it is a Professional Development Day at our school. We have room for others and would like to open it up to all charter school leaders. If you have colleagues who work with you at your school, operations directors, emergency coordinators, school principals, or know of anyone at other area public or private schools who would benefit from this program, our doors are open to them. We do have limited seating, so an RSVP is greatly appreciated. The program is not appropriate for students.
Please RSVP to me by March 9th so we have adequate preparations.
